I did the update as you instructed in the link above. The finishing installation process is taking a long time. Is something wrong? The computer was installing it last night around 10:00p.m. and it's 6:20a.m. and I still see the Windows XP screen "Please wait..." and the hour glass. Should I reboot?

Broni,
I rebooted and everything looks good. If anything else comes up, I'll post with a different topic. Thanks a lot. This is resolved.

Don't close yet. I'm getting a message "The requested lookup key was not found in any active activation context." It has popped on the screen several times. How can I correct this?

Yes. Whenever I type in an address I get this message. Then another message appears: Http:///www.google.com/ is not accessibe. The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Oh, I see.
Download IE7: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en on another computer, move it to THIS computer, and install it.

One of the reasons, it's a good idea to have more than one browser installed.

That is very helpful if you are having network or compatibility problems.

Once you get IE working again, make sure that you have all the latest hotfixes and SP3.

I downloaded IE7 and now when I click on the icon. It never opens. I can't get to the internet. I went to control panel/automatic updates to access the Windows Update wesite site and no response.

The response time for opening any folders is very slow. I also got this message: Windows -Virtual Memory Minimum too low. What do you think is wrong now?

If you did reboot in the middle of repair process, I think, you have run repair again.
